‘865’ is a unique work of art by the Canadian artist Sonja Kobrehel. Sonja is known for never doing the same thing twice. SShe takes absolute freedom when it comes to her art and lets her feelings and thoughts guide her through the process. ‘865’ depicts a subject-less subject, leaving us with the only option to contemplate the relationship between art and reality. It represents an almost conceptual art exercise where the image prompts our thought process. Sonja wanted to free the picture of materiality, introducing a certain state of mind to the viewer, free of any distracting elements or prompting from the artist. Only a handful of writings are visible, suggesting a message that is not yet ready to be shared.
‘865’ is an abstract painting created using mixed media on a wooden panel. It measures 101 x 101 x 6 cm and ships ready to hang.
